The ameowzing thing about cat posts is that they’re a carte blanche for me to use as meowny puns as I like. And for that, I’m eternally grateful to our feline overlords who let me know what they desire by meowing at me until I get things right.
Speaking of our overlords, there’s an entire online community dedicated to documenting cats meowing, hissing, yelling, and everything in between, called r/Catswhoyell. The subreddit has 408k meowmbers and has been up and about on Reddit since the summer of 2018. These photos are so evocative, you can practically hear the sounds the cats are making. We’ve collected the best ones to make your day, Dear Pandas, so go on, have a look and remember to pet the cats you liked the most by clicking on those upvote buttons.

The ‘Cats Who Yell’ subreddit is all about cats making sounds and communicating with the outside world. Or, in the moderators’ words, “All yells are valid and good,” however, “Yawns will be shamed.”
In short, it’s not enough for a cat to have its mouth open to be featured on the subreddit. The photos have to capture the essence of the meows. So much so that you can almost hear them when looking at the pics.

The subreddit also values fairness and wants its members to share original content. Failing that, they’re asked to at least provide a source to credit the original posters and to avoid claiming cute cats as though they were their own when they’re not.

Furthermore, the ‘Cats Who Yell’ moderators have created a hilariously detailed (and adorable) guide to flairing. In case you didn’t know, flairs are Reddit’s way of helping subreddits categorize their content. Think of them as keyword tags on an online article or sections in your local library.

#12 Sorry For Disturbing You On Your Throne, Your Majesty!

For instance (and I’ve got to give the mods props for this), the subreddit has two separate flairs for people talking to cats. The first one is the ‘Human Conversationalist’ where a person talks to the cat and the cat meows back. Meanwhile, there’s a separate category for ‘Human Conmeowsationalist’ where the person meows and the cat meows back.

There are other fun flairs such as “Baby Cat mew mew mewmew mewmewmew” (yes, it’s that long). “Aw Lawd They Yellin’,” and who can forget about “Calm down, dear kitty!” for angry cats. There really is enough room for all kinds of meows. As long as they’re not yawns!
